Huey Crowley started filming videos probably in 8th grade. He didn’t know there was such a thing as contemporary art when he was in his teens. Early on he was making stop motion animation and doing stunts, but he would draw and paint as well. Now he is best known for his bright and colourful paintings depicting larger- than-life figures, from celebrities like Britney Spears, Michael Jackson and Mr. Peanut to his alter ego Fishman and archetypal figures from American colloquial culture. Often expressive to the point of confrontational the paintings demand the viewer’s attention and leave the observer questioning the nature of high and low culture, often mixing markers of both in the same artwork. The extreme, whether in personalities, actions or cultural markers, is a cornerstone of Crowley’s work.
